    Need Help Installing Modules (XAMPP)


    Alright, so I'm apparently a moron. I'm running xampp, have installed perl on it, but I need to install some modules and apparently am too stupid to do so.

    I'm trying to install Threads and SOAP Lite, and they both say to run these commands:

    perl Makefile.PL
    make
    make test
    make install

    So, first of all, where do I need to extract these files to (perl\lib??) ? Once extracted, where do I run these commands from? Any help would be EXTREMELY appreciated. Thanks for reading.

    First of all, what OS are you running this on?

    You might be a moron because XAMPP comes with perl. If you install perl again you may have screwed something up, especially if you are using Windows.

    Sorry, I have never tried using XAMPP. I use perl (currently strawberry perl 5.10 on Vista 64 bit) and to install modules you just use the CPAN shell.

    Hi, not sure how it is in Windows, cause I installed modules using makefile.pl in solaris. It comes with a C compiler, which you need in order to install modules in the way you mentioned. In windows I believe it is not necessary the makefile and stuff. I would recommend you to take a look at this link for methods of installing Perl modules in Windows.
    http://code.activestate.com/recipes/502297-installing-perl-modules-on-windows/

    Just to let you know, anytime you need to run the perl command, for example:

    perl -MCPAN -e shell

    make sure you tell it to use the perl under the xampp directory.

    Not sure if I was helpful, but I was able to do the make make install under Unix. Regards.
